Perceiving Goodness

It is said in the Bible that when our time comes, we are judged not only on our words and actions but also on how we perceived reality.

So we need to ask ourselves: When we perceive something, do we perceive it with kindness and love?

I’m sure that most of us have noticed that when somebody we just don’t like or who just rubs us the wrong way does something, each and every thing that they do is wrong in our mind’s eye. What they say, what they do, how they act, how they dress: in short, whatever it might be that pertains to our senses will be skewed, not necessarily because of them, but rather because of our perception, because of our judgement.

We all see through the lens of our own prejudices. Two people who witness the same car accident will often see it completely differently. Our environment, our friends, the culture in which we live: all predetermine the things that we do judge and how we will judge them.
